May 11, 1997
There is no better time to pedal into the Fall Creek Recreational Area than early May.
By then the roadway is free of snow and ice, and yet auto traffic is very light.
Also, the temperature is mild and the river runs wild.
The dogwood and iris were profuse and in full bloom.
Happily, their fragrance did overpower that coming from the equally profuse skunk cabbage!
Lunch was eaten atop a rocky outcrop within spitting distance of the river.
However, we knew that this water would eventually flow from our kitchen faucets …
so, no-one spat!
Sharing the 40 beautiful miles of diversified scenery were Barbara Bruns, Gayle Berge, Carol Houde,
Bob Moffitt and Rose Marie Moffitt
plus three non-members — Joyce Sanders and Karen & Rex Prater. Trip leader: Bob Devine.
